New System, Gigabyte GA-5AX M/B Rev5.x, AMD 500 K6-2 CPU, 64MB SDRAM, Aureal Cheapo sound card, Generic "PowerColor" TNT2 CM64A 16MB AGP Video card.
Right away the system started to lockup, a small band of fuzzy color would appear horazantaly accross the screen. Deleted the vid driver, re-installed it. It still locked up but w/o band of color. Screen resolution is being run 800x600 16 high color. It seems not to lock up as much on 640x480 256 colors. I tried the detonator drivers from Nvidia but still have the same problem. The manufacturue doesn't have any newer drivers. I noticed (if it matters) that the video card and the IRQ holder for PCIsteering are using IRQ 10. The IRQ holder also is listed as using IRQ 5 to.
SO.... is this a video card problem??
What to do next??
